Tide Pod Challenge

Tide Pod Challenge published on No Comments on Tide Pod Challenge

Another foamer in the morgue. Tag em, bag em, then try and sweep up the bubbles. Yes, the youth are now eating soap balls for sport, and public authorities are scrambling to make sure “Generation T” doesn’t wash itself off the map while participating in the Tide Pod Challenge.

What is the challenge exactly? Eat a packet of laundry detergent, then post the pictures on the internet. Ostensibly the goal is to raise awareness for rabies, another condition that causes one to foam at the mouth.

Like so many public health initiatives, the one to expose the danger of Tide Pods is completely misguided, placing the blame for toxic laundry disasters on society’s eternal scapegoat, the wayward teen. Consider this:

  • Washing your clothes in toxic chemicals: acceptable use, perfectly cool!
  • Sending those same toxic chemicals down the drain: right on, no problem!
  • Allowing idiots to eat yummy soap balls and in the process extinguish themselves from society before they can grow up to be air traffic controllers, train engineers, medical imaging technicians, or simply contribute to the gene pool: bad idea, public health crisis, red alert!

This cartoonist doesn’t want your foaming face wheeling him around the nursing home someday.

And of course the whole thing begs the question – are people so lazy they can’t even measure their own detergent anymore? This is coming from a guy who grew up with powdered soap – there was NEVER a problem with that stuff.

Powdered soap a safe alternative.

Okay, I’ll admit it’s a little sad to see teens tweeting to the Tide Corporation to ask what to do about their burning insides, but, um, really? How did you make it this far in life already?

Check in end of week for another Grinsane cartoon!

p.s. Technical question – is the cartoon clear? My wife says my Tide Pod looks like a smooshed Pepsi Can.

Go Grinsane! published on No Comments on Go Grinsane!

This is something I’ve been wanting to do for a while. I have a manilla folder full of rough sketches of single frame “horror” cartoons and I finally found some time to clean them up, splash them with garish color, and turn these machete swinging mutants loose on the world.

Some of them are silly and others a bit more twisted. It’s all good fun, even if you cringe now and again. This site also might be your best chance to see a witch do a flip on a broom, in case you wondering how that works.

The toons will start rolling in on January 1, 2018 — prepare to go Grinsane!
